About this Site:
We are a loose collaboration of trans-activists and allies in the Iowa City area. So excited to start this blog and website. Our goals for this space are to make it a community building website through lively discussions of issues/everyday events that we encounter as trans* folk and allies.
We also want to use this space to provide resources (for trans* folk, allies, and providers) and keep you updated on events happening around town!
TransCollaborations is an organization open to all trans-identified people and allies of the trans* community in Iowa City and beyond. Our work is aimed towards promoting education, outreach, civic engagement, and community building centered around gender identity and addressing intersectional forms of oppression.
We aim to bring trans-identified folk and allies together for these purposes and to implement TransWeek! on an annual basis. TransWeek! is a week of events organized around the dual themes of remembering and celebrating trans-identified folk and serves to provide education, spirited discussions, and celebration of those who have overcome institutional and micro-level trans-related barriers. In addition to TransWeek! we also organize cool events like bringing Eli Clare to campus, SaltLines Tour, and other amazing artists and performers.
TransCollaborations meets on the second and fourth Sunday of the month at noon at the Women’s Resource & Action Center. Check out our upcoming events page for bi-monthly meeting information & events that we are organizing.
